Cython has to support old-style relative imports also in Py3 because that's how the user code was originally written, using Py2-style syntax and semantics. Most Cython code has not been converted to Py3 syntax/semantics, but still needs to work in Py3. >From a user perspective, it's best to switch on "__future__.absolute_import" >and use explicit relative imports (or write Py3 code), because it reduces the >overhead at import time. I'm hoping to look into multi-step module initialisation this summer. As Nick noted, this might also help with this issue. ---------- _______________________________________ Python tracker <rep...@bugs.python.org> <http://bugs.python.org/issue25791> _______________________________________ _______________________________________________ Python-bugs-list mailing list Unsubscribe: https://mail.python.org/mailman/options/python-bugs-list/archive%40mail-archive.com
